'…as the Labour candidate I prepared for every possible question on the local radio Election Phone-In. What I had not prepared for was my mum ringing up to say that she agreed with John O’Farrell. On EVERYTHING.'Where Did We Go Right? is the personal story of one political activist helping Labour progress from its 1997 landslide to the unassailable position it enjoys today. Along the way, he stood for Parliament against Theresa May but failed to step into her shoes; he was dropped from Tony and Cherie’s Christmas card list after he revealed he always sent their card on to a friend from the SWP; and he campaigned for a new non-selective inner-city state school, then realised this meant he had to send his kids to a non-selective inner-city state school. The long-awaited sequel to the best-selling Things Can Only Get Better is for everyone who could use a good laugh after Brexit, Boris and Trump. A roller-coaster ride through the last two decades via the very best political jokes (excluding the ones that keep getting elected).
The follow-up to his classic memoir, Things Can Only Get Better: Eighteen Miserable Years in the Life of a Labour Supporter - John O'Farrell takes us on a sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-breaking rollercoaster ride from the highs of that Labour victory in ‘97 to the lows of Brexit.
John O'Farrell's first book was a bestselling memoir, Things Can Only Get Better. Since then he has published five novels: The Man Who Forgot His Wife, May Contain Nuts, This Is Your Life, The Best a Man Can Get and most recently There's Only Two David Beckhams. He has also written two best-selling history books: An Utterly Impartial History of Britain and An Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain, as well as three collections of journalism from his Guardian columns. His books have been translated into over twenty-five languages and have been adapted for radio and television. A former comedy scriptwriter for such productions as Spitting Image, Room 101, Have I Got News For You, Murder Most Horrid and Chicken Run, he is founder of the UK's first daily news satire website NewsBiscuit and more recently co-wrote the Broadway musical Something Rotten!
